The $9 million expansion to the Treasure Coast campus approved by Gov. Bush this year was ranked the fifth most important story for the Treasure Coast region, according to the Scripps Treasure Coast newspapers, including the Stuart News. The story placed behind algae bloom issue in the region's waterways, soaring housing prices, Hurricane Wilma and canker affecting the region's citrus production. Construction is expected to start later this year on the expansion project, which will add a fifth classroom building to the campus.
Lifelong Learning for the Treasure Coast begins this month at the Vero Beach Museum of Art. The museum’s 240-seat Leonhardt Auditorium is handicap-accessible and equipped with tools for hearing-impaired students. This program is an extension of the University’s Lifelong Learning Society, which offers courses at the Boca Raton and Jupiter campus locations. This month also marks the debut of Lifelong Learning classes in Broward (see related story).
